After driving RWD and FWD vehicles my whole life, this is my first time in an AWD car. Coming from my previous Infiniti Q50 Hybrid, driving this car in less than ideal conditions and rain is a dream. In my Infiniti just stepping on the gas slightly hard would cause it to spin or fishtail. You had to drive extremely carefully in the rain (the car actually ended up hydroplaning on the highway and why I now have an S3). With the S3, I can actually take off hard off the line and the car doesn't care at all that the road is wet and it is raining, and that is just crazy to me and so confidence inspiring. Obviously I know the limits and am careful, but with my previous cars driving in the rain was a nightmare, with the Audi, it's actually enjoyable and I look forward to it. I didn't really have a point to this thread, I'm just excited at how well this car handles bad weather. It is a huge selling point that I didn't even really consider much when purchasing.
